the implementation of the notorious federal health care law. >> reporter: ken cuccinelli the personification of the tea party. the polls say he is going to lose. his demise in virginia could be a sign of things to come. >> all right, joining me now is congressman gerry connolly, a democrat from virginia. congressman, thank you for taking some time tonight. i want to get to that election in virginia and what it says about where the country is and where the country is going, it's only five days away. but first i want to start at the basic issue of the poll numbers for the president today, which made so much news today. you heard that repetition in the package we just played there. george bush territory, the idea that here in his fifth year as president, president obama now falling to a level about where george w. bush was at this point in his fifth year. what do you make of the numbers you're seeing for the president right now, just as a democrat, as a member of his party, what do you attribute it to and are you worried about it? >> you know, i think every president has a rough patch. i'm old
. which i believe is your state. and you've got that governor's race, and the republican ken cuccinelli looks like he might have a chance. he's moving closer to terry mcauliffe, the democrat, who's had a comfortable lead. could he pull this out? >> you know, if you'd asked me that last week, i would have said no way. but what's happening in this race, interestingly enough, i talked to ken cuccinelli late this week. and he told me that their polls are narrowing. that's what any politician will tell you. but what he's telling me is the number one reason that he's closing that gap is one word, paul, obama care. this has become a big issue in this state race because terry mcauliffe is all in for obama care, the attorney general ken cuccinelli is against it. so it's interesting how that obama care issue may have a big impact on a big state race on tuesday. >> interesting. can obama care trump the earlier shutdown problems? >> exactly. >> ken cuccinelli in northern virginia which provides about 30% of the statewide vote. now in new york city, quickly, in the mayor's race, fascinating decision
we go with mcauliffe where ken cuccinelli could have run away with this race. >> this is like the bonapartes making maximillan emperor of mexico. this is a reach by the clintons. they take a guy, a good guy, mcauliffe, and put him into virginia. it's an extraordinary success. he's a very likeable guy but the clintons will get a lot of credit for this. this is the first big pin on the map. we've got virginia next time. >> do you think this is the tale of where the republican party is going and chris christie will become the national story? >> i have a dog in this race. i want the republican party to return to its roots. it will always have a very hard right part to it but i think it's got to rebuild its center. i think with christie they have a good shot at rebuilding the old new york and pennsylvania and new jersey republican party, the party that used to be a centrist party. they need to have that wing up there. it takes two wings, and that centrist wing has to be rebuilt, i think. >> chris matthews, great to have you here, be sure to watch "hardball" at 7:00 p.m. tonight i g
and ken cuccinelli. >> liberals in america want more government, more taxes, and a completely amoral cultural system. this is your children's book for the summer. >> thank you very much. >> if you ever forget who you should vote for, read this book. and if you have kids, give them nightmares before they go to bed. through christ our lord, and thank you for this time together, amen. in a campaign, you learn to prioritize, and pro-lifers and evangelical christians are huge supporters of the republican party along with big business, but there are only so many ceo's in the world. this is a tight race, and it is my first experience with negative campaigning. i hope it is received well. the music ended up being dark and negative, and it is exactly what i want associated with janet, negativity. that is janet. she looks sickly. it is bound to help subliminally. for the second half of the song, it is upbeat, we are leaving darkness, and we go into a happy place. people can make the argument that it is manipulation, but our goal is to win an election. that is the point of politics, to win elec
candidate. nominate the right candidates. >> ken cuccinelli may be able to -- i don't know, anna, did you see that? >> yeah. i've seen polls all over the place. i'm sure that the government shutdown issue hurt cuccinelli. i'm also sure what's happening with obama care is at some point hurting mcauliffe as well. so yes, i have seen polls as tight as seven points, five points. and others that have it as broad as 12 points and so, we're yet to see, look, you never know until election day and until you figure out what voters came out. if the democrat voters get overconfident, it could be very bad for them. >> go ahead, lz. >> i was going to say, it is important to note that virginia is a very special case. there is a very volatile civil war happening within the gop in that particular state. ken cuccinelli kind of did some shady stuff. they didn't didn't have a primary there, they add convention. the tea party and conservative christians took the tea party instead of a natural democratic process. what you mentioned before, anna, they are purple. in the primary process, it doesn't matter which
auliffe against ken cuccinelli. almost a miracle that the lead is not bigger. mcauliffe raised there are 34 million for the race issue 3 million from big unions, cuccinelli raised under $20 million. 400 from unions. in new jersey, governor race, a blowout, christie ahead ofby i don'buonobuono. but not for a lack of trying on behalf of unions. they pushed $12 million for her campaign. >> new york, this is quite something liberal democrat deblasio with 65 percent support compared to joe lota 24%. i think it clear, some people say this is one of a very serious under estimate of the voting result. joining us now the a-team, hank shinshine cop of. appreciate it. >> let's turn first to this race in virginia. matt with you. 6 it was 10 points, you can say -- is there a clan of an upset. >> i think that this race is trending in the right way, poor ken cuccinelli has not caught a break, and out of nowhere we were reminded obamacare was implemented creating a firestorm across the nation, including virginia, unfortunately you brought up that union money, a lot of people decided that race could not be
auliffe is several points ahead of his republican rival, ken cuccinelli. the question is what it will lock like on november 5th. he brought in the big dog, long time friend and former president you may know by the name of bill clinton. boost turn out particularly among african-american voters in college towns. on sunday, clinton kicked off a four-day, nine-city tour of the state with mcoffive. casting cuccinelli as divicive. he urged democrats not to take anything for granted. >> the one political virtue of extremism is this. if you can really get people all hot and bothered and their inside is in knots, full of anger and steam coming out of their ears instead of a light bulb going off in their brains, they will vote. they will show up every time. >> republicans inside washington run against health care and republicans outside washington run against washington, democrats everywhere are running against the tea party. >> just recently my opponent, ken cuccinelli was campaigning at a gathering of his supporters with ted cruz. he refused to stand up for virginia and against ted cruz's shut down str
the gop presidential front-runner. and in virginia, can republican ken cuccinelli pull a fast closing upset? those races tomorrow night. all those stories and much more coming up in "the kudlow report" beginning right now. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." we're live here at 7:00 p.m. eastern and 4:00 p.m. pacific. we have more headlines breaking today on the failure of obama care. here's the latest. a new study shows up to 129 people could lose their current health plans and face an average premium hike of 41% because of obama care rolls. we have more on that in just a couple minutes from the author of the study. >>> and documents acquired by nbc show that administration officials are worried that more and more americans will be angered when they learn about the real costs of obama care and that they may lose their doctors. but the big story is this. because of the obama care failure, president obama's entire second-term agenda is now in serious jeopardy. just listen to what mitt romney had to say on "meet the press." >> i think that fundament
's the front-runner right now. president didn't waste any time linking ken cuccinelli to the national tea party. >> you've seen an extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they are willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. if you embrace the very politics that led to this shutdown, i guarantee you it's not in the rear view mirror of voters in virginia they remember. they understand that that is not how you govern and that is not how you move america forward. >> cuccinelli's campaign predicted president obama's visit would energize be republican voters outraged over the obama care rollout exchanges. terry mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by 12 points. >> that's a big gap. >> that's massive. >> we'll see. okay. are we going to go to toronto or should we wait until little center i think we'll do it after the break. you all haven't been that well behaved. >> let's smoke. >> no. let's not. that's bad. >> help me out, willie. >> terry wins this race. christi
election has dipped from the previous one. just twice. both terry mcauliffe and ken cuccinelli seem to be aware of that history because when there's general discontent with the choices, that's what happens. it happened in 1985 when a democrat won and in 1998 when jim gilmore won. 64% of mcauliffe voters claim they're not voting for mcauliffe but against cuccinelli. >>> next up, the fifth, as in the fifth circuit court of appeals. where a federal judge ruled monday that a new texas law that restricts -- puts new restrictions on abortion are unconstitutional. the law was famously filibustered by democratic state senator wendy davis who has now launched a bid for governor. the law was set to go into effect today. texas attorney general greg abbott, also running for goff, no was expected to file an emergency appeal. we've seen this time and again. state laws on abortions usually get stopped or overturned by the courts. our final number for you today, 100. that's how many days are left until the 2014 winter olympics in sochi, russia. go get your maps out and if ig your out where that is.
point lead over his opponent ken cuccinelli. mark, you're the first read team, wrote about the race and position it what we're watching take place in new jersey as well. >> two things going on. on the one hand in the republican party, you have what is seen -- kind of playing out in virginia where republicans say we need to be a conservative party first and foremost. in new jersey, where chris christie is running for re-election, you end up having a different argument where chris christie who is conservative, is saying we need to win races first and foremost. almost electability versus ideology argument playing out. chris christie appears to be cruising towards re-election and ken cuccinelli is trailing mccalliffe. >> as exploring this as the 2016 proxy fight between clinton and christie. >> one of the reasons it's a proxy fight, a lot of people working on the terry mccalliffe campaign, there are folks who wouldn't play a big role in the hillary clinton for president campaign, on the other hand chris christie doing well in the exit polls with different demographic groups, what george
leaders like your next governor, ken cuccinelli. therveths don't come better than chris christie. >> they try to discern things. >> there are very real consequences when you operate ideologically. >> does ted cruz stand out to you? >> put five red necks on a mower. >> i'm being unfairly targeted by a bunch of hacks and haters. if dueling were legal in kentucky it would be a challenge. >> the last five years have not been a great time. >> a jumble of unfocused noise out of touch with the things you care about. ♪ like a song you hear that lingers in your ear ♪ ♪ but you can't forget from sundown ♪ ♪ >> this week marks one year since the 2012 presidential election and if this is the annual checkup, it's largely the president's health care law that's going through a major stress test. and right now, the white house is reaching out for support in the face of continuous oh criticism of the law and its rollout. later this evening, the president will speak about the benefits of health care reform at an organizing for action event. and later this week, he'll travel to texas to t
are not as bad as ken cuccinelli is. i don't want to read too much into this particular race -- >> does have a special way with the lady folks. >> exactly, a little bit unique. one thing to note, we talked about health care as well. chris christie is one of the few republican governors who embraced obama care, he's taken up the medicaid funding there. obama care doing pred pretty badly overall but tomorrow will be a victory because i assume terry mcauliffe, the promedicaid expansion and chris christie to the left of republicans also wins, something to think about as we move forward. the question for christie, he's hugged the questi eged the pres didn't hug him. >> he touched him. >> we want to be clear about that. >> it was unacceptable. too much hugging. >> the point i was going to make, i think chris christie has thoen he's moderate. the next race he may be running in is the republican presidential primary, not a place in which touching the president and being nice to him is rewarded verywoman. he should think about that. >> we have new reporting over the weekend about where the problems i
in new jersey while ken cuccinelli is expected to go down bad in purple virginia. will the right learn its lesson or decide cuccinelli wasn't right wing enough. >>> and even with all the problems of the health care rollout, you want the guys giving health care or the one who isn't even trying. the republican plan is no plan at all. >>> and ann colter says it's not the right that's pushing the birther notion. it's someone else. this is "hardball," the place for politics. so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart of everything we do. we've added cutting-edge technology, like a new deepwater well cap and a state-of-the-art monitoring center, where experts watch over all drilling activity twenty-four-seven. and we're sharing what we've learned, so we can all produce energy more safely. our commitment has never been stronger. as your life changes, fidelity is there for your personal economy, helping you readjust along the way, refocus as careers change and kids head off to college, and revisit your investments as retirement gets closer. wherever
in new jersey and ken cuccinelli in virginia, the two republicans in the running have a lot to tell us about just what kind of republican can get elected these days. now, on the one hand, you have christie, who, if recent polls showing him clobbering his democratic opponent, barbara what's her name by a 19-point margin are any indication, it's the kind who wins elections. correction, the kind of republican who can win elections in a blue state that gave president obama 58% of the vote in 2012. now, on paper, chris christie is as conservative as they come. opposition to reproductive rights? check. he defunded planned parenthood and refused to fund new jersey state family planning centers. standing strong against marriage equality? check. he recently backed down from his efforts to block same-sex marriage from moving the forward in new jersey, but only after a long, long fight to keep it from happening. advancing economic austerity policies, check. opposing organized labor, check. suppressing votes by politicking a plan for early voting, uh, check. slashing public education budgets, chec
rubio is ready to go outlet ken cuccinelli. carl, this is getting very interesting. >> 36 hours in the polls will be closed. this is a case in which both the republicans and others have been campaigning and a barrage of attacks killing the virginia airways and debates have been personally nasty as they go back and forth. both sides have very specific messages. ken cuccinelli is trying to make waves and he also has been working towards good turnout. they're about half of what came out and last year and since then it's a real issue. campaigning with joe biden this morning, it seems that republican who has united this has been out of touch. going after the issue of women's health issues. >> he still has not explained why he supports this and this includes the focus and he has attacked women's health care access and the social security you have paid into and the scientific research. >> we spent about $20 million on his campaign and a lot of it has been seen negatively. a lot less money and can kuchen -- ken cuccinelli has been recognizing that the affordable care act is being litiga
. ken cuccinelli are mentioning the problems with obama. christie doesn't mention that. he says we need to work together. he is distancing himself from what some of the republican party is doing. >> ted cruz irreversible? >> not among republican voters. still when i talk to republicans in iowa, they think what he did was absolutely heroic for the party and he's not yet taken a real ding from that. >> governor romney also weighed in on the challenges that hillary clinton could face should she decide to run. listen to this. >> she's a very well known figure. obviously if she becomes a nominee, we'll be taking a very close look at her record as secretary of state and seeing what she actually accomplished and where america has gone. i think people will have to think that the last four years, last five years have not been a great time for america's interests around the world. she's responsible for part of that. >> peter, what's your sense? is benghazi the unspoken word in that comment he had made there? if so, how vulnerable could the former secretary of state be over her record? >> well, yo
, for instance, the campaign manager of ken cuccinelli, when they were talking about the shutdown, they were having a hard time, and now they're talking about obama care and his campaign is doing better and better. the shutdown was not the right way, in my view, but with obama care, i would have taken the senate and the white house and replace it with something that's going to do a better job for the american people and let them keep the insurance they were promised they could keep in the first place. >> you mentioned ken cuccinelli running for governor in virginia. the new book is called "double down game change 2012." a lot of political intrigue. one aspect, governor, when you had a family owned plan, you actually voted against it. you questioned whether you should stay in the race and whether you could ultimately win. there is an argument that comes through in the book with some republicans that with the stakes so high in the 2012 election, did you not show enough fight? did you not want to win it enough? how do you rebut that charge? >> there is no question but that i wanted to win it. n
for mcauliffe. that's from ken cuccinelli. this hail mary as it described by our first read team is essentially to try to tie up what's happening with the health care website and some of the issues that's plaguing the administration in getting it off the ground with the race in virginia. >> absolutely. obama care continues to be dominant force right now in the race. both mcauliffe is running on it and supported it. you see on the right cuccinelli has already made it an issue saying vote for me if you don't like obama care. even obama has -- his team has said if mcauliffe does win, saying there's a referendum on obama care and people do like this law once going forward. >> the first read team going back to -- people should check it out, both thoughts on this. you're saying that the races, particularly new jersey and virginia, it's about minding the middle and the base, which is what your headline was, mark. >> tamron, the point we were trying to make, the sign of a really healthy party, when your candidate tries to appeal to the middle that the base is not being alienated. we're s
significant given the outcome the republicans are bracing for on election day in virginia. ken cuccinelli, the state attorney general is a tea party darling, staunch fiscal and social conservative, he finds himself down nearly 10 points. the former democratic party ken mcauliffe. but mcauliffe, makes this, look for soul searching on the right wing of the gop and the part of republicans to try otake the party back. >> david back to christie, could a big win -- okay, he's going to win tomorrow. could it be a springboard in 2016 for the republican nomination for president? >> yes, very familiar with george w. bush, he ran up huge numbers. he was able to convince party organizers, i'm the guy who can reach across, get women, i'm not as conservative, christie is out there right now trying to run up the numbers for tomorrow in new jersey. >> david appreciate it. thank you. >>> the race for new york city mayor is expected to net a big win for the democratic party. surprisingly, the city has been led by a republican for two two decades. randall pinkston reports. >> opponent bill deblantia is runn
that the cuccinelli loss was because he was too muted and because of the advisers didn't let ken be ken or does the prevailing view hold that when you hold the center, you are doomed to lose? swing states? the guy who went for a non-tea party strategy is taking a page from george w. bush's playbook trying to prove electability to national republican donors and republicans across the country and hope he ends up on wednesday morning the front runner of the establishment wing for 2016. the campaign is not hiding the message. look at the release called blue jersey. in the overwhelming democratic garden state, no republican candidate has earned higher than 50% of the vote in 28 years. >> for the republican party that lost last year in the presidential election, for the republican party that lost seats in the u.s. senate, for the republican party that has been disspirited for the last number of months, we need to show the republican party in america that we can win again. guess where they will be watching on tuesday night to see if we win. right here in new jersey. they will be watching us. >> christ
is going to be and how bad the loss is for ken cuccinelli. the story behind chris christie is going to be huge. you may have picked somebody for the short list on that martinez ticket. good signs that the party is waking up and seeing that we have to make big changes. >> you said something about mainstream and i was picking out the four points and you can feel the narrative developing. we will have a republican primary and a special election taking place in tuesday in al bam a. tea party versus non-tea party. this is a place where the tea party normally should win and i argue the expectations say the tea party is the place to lose. if they don't, it adds to the narrative. mainstream hasn't stopped the tea party before if mainstream groups are going to kiss of death. how do you prevent that from being the case in the primaries in 2014? >> i think you are right about the tea party, but i don't think the business community and mainstream republicans have really organized effectively and funded effectively in an effort to recruit mainstream candidates against the candidates and do it ea

moving around the country. scott walker will join republican ken cuccinelli on the final days and senator rand paul will be back in the old dominion after what can be described as a less than stellar week. he is sort of a tea party guy who is more acceptable to the establishment got this front page treatment in the national journal. this week he has been trying to beat back plagiarism charges. >> to disagree on how you footnote things and people do it differently in an academic paper than they do in a public speech. if we presented any of these for publication that had footnotes and a speech if people don't take the time to footnote things. it was clear that the plot line was not something i created. i department claim i created the movie. that's what is absurd. the plot line belongs to one person. the screen writer and i gave him credit for that. >> the office told nbc this. in the course of a 25-minute speech, he described the 34r09 of a movie and attributed it to the primary sources and no way saying it was his own thoughts or ideas. it has been submitted for academic tubication it wou
auliffe leads ken cuccinelli by 12 points. his largest margin in the poll yet. and when mcauliffe supporters asked what motivates their vote, as i said, nearly two-thirds, 64%, say it's the chance to vote against the republican cuccinelli. by just not being the extreme right winger, the democrat gets the bulk of the votes. this matches, by the way, almost the 65% of virginia voters who have now said they have an unfavorable opinion of the republican party nationally suggesting the force driving this election of virginia next tuesday is the negative voter feeling about the republican party nationally. gene, this is stark stuff. i know we live in washington. i know virginia's to our south across the potomac. but this is the canary in the mine that just died for the republican party. >> well, i think it did. if you look at virginia, it's a purple state. it was red, it's become more blue. it's gone for obama a couple of times. but it's very close. it's a changing state. growing hispanic population. it's like the country in some sense. >> the numbers are almost exactly the same as the numbers nat
